The PEB1a protein of the gastrointestinal pathogen Campylobacter jejuni mediates interactions with epithelial cells and is an important factor in host colonization. Cell fractionation and immunoblotting showed that PEB1a is most abundant in the periplasm of C. jejuni, and is detectable in the culture supernatant but not in the inner or outer membrane. The protein is homologous with periplasmic-binding proteins associated with ABC transporters and we show by fluorescence spectroscopy that… CONTINUE READING
